We have the pleasure in offering for sale this 1986 Owners Version Beneteau 405.
Hydroquest is in excellent condition and is fully set up for cruising with the speed and comfort advantage of having had a 60cm sugar scoop and swim step professionally added to her transom.
She was outfitted for her Trans-Pacific voyage with new 700AH batteries, Hydrovane self steering with Raymarine interface, AIS, 24nm Radar, solar panels, Echo Tec 50lph watermaker and the list goes on and on.
She is supremely comfortable below with a spacious two cabin layout, which affords a massive queen plus sized marine bed and large head and shower.
Her galley is well equipped and the 50hp Perkins Diesel is mounted amidships, for balance and is easily accessed with room to move around.
Her general condition is impressive inside and out. Designed and built before the latest craze of super lightweight offerings from the French marque this is a serious yacht for people who wish to go places.
The famed American yacht designer Robert Perry had this to say about the Beneteau 405 in a 2000 review-
The more I studied the 405 the more I became aware of how refined this layout was. This boat shows almost ideal dimensions in each area. I found I could push and pull a little but I could not make a significant improvement in the layout.
The designer of this boat is Jean Berret. You would expect that with all that interior, the appearance of the boat would suffer but this is a handsome boat with updated Nautors Swan school styling. There is a nice, subtle spring to the sheerline. The ends are short but they look aesthetically balanced. The boat is moderately beamy and gives the general appearance of being a fast boat. If you take the time to really study the deck of the Beneteau, you will notice several things. The detailing is excellent. The general finish level of the tooling is excellent.
